Travel Guide - Mount Kumotori-yama

InformationInformation

When climbing the mountains of Okutama, Mt. Kumotori-yama cannot be missed. With its altitude of 2,017 meters, Mt. Kumotori-yama is the highest peak in Tokyo, and is also a source of water for the people of the city. The open prospects of the ridge make for a pleasant stroll, while the view from the summit is excellent.
As the highest point in Tokyo, the summit offers an unbroken view of not only the city but of the Kanto Plains as well. Looking from the emergency shelter area towards Ishi Ridge, the Kanto Plains spread out before the eye. On clear days, the view of the city from Tokyo's highest point will include the city's skyscrapers. In morning the view can be backlit by the sun's glare, so chances of seeing the skyscrapers are highest on autumn and winter afternoons. The view of the surrounding mountains, such as Mt. Fuji or the Southern Alps, is also excellent.
Several routes are available, with Kamozawa route, along the banks of Lake Okutama-ko, being the most standard path. The route is well maintained, with many hikers. Since it is hard for normal hikers to climb the mountain in one day, there are some huts and shelters on the way to the summit.
